In related news, some program participants report being unable to redeem Roblox Gift Cards, which caused different speculations, specifically with the possibility of Microsoft removing it from the list of its redeemable rewards in the program. Nonetheless, Microsoft Rewards Customer Support clarified the situation, saying the option is only unavailable at the moment due to lack of stock.
Turns out, I was mistaken. I contacted Microsoft Rewards Customer Support, and they said that they ran out of stock. If you're that desperate for robux, jeez wait. Microsoft ran out of stock of ROBLOX gift cards, use those points for a Microsoft Gift Card lol (2/2)
